Israeli settlers destroy 80 olive trees, assault Palestinian farmer near Ramallah

Israeli settlers destroyed more than 80 olive trees north of the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah as attacks on Palestinian farmers continue during the olive harvesting season.

Amin Abu Eliya, head of Al-Mughayyer village council, told the Palestinian Authority's news agency Wafa that farmers woke up early on Thursday to find that their crops had been destroyed.

The settlers who destroyed and uprooted the trees live near the illegal Israeli settlement of Adi Ad and were heavily protected by occupying Israeli forces, Abu Eliya said.

The settlers and forces also assaulted a farmer, who was left with bruises after the attack.
